The quartet consisting of Phillip Anslemo, guitarist Dimebag Darrell, his brother, drummer Vinnie Paul and bassist Rex Brown quickly achieved massive global success in the 90s with multiple platinum and gold albums, sold out tours, ferocious live shows and four Grammy Award nominations. Even today, their songs are considered masterpieces of metal music and true cornerstones of heavy metal music on albums such as Cowboys From Hell, Vulgar Display Of Power and the album that reached number 1 in Billboard, Far Beyond Driven. The four Texans have continued to inspire many bands while amassing millions of devoted fans around the world.
Few of us hoped for a reunion, but this is now possible at the METALHEAD Meeting. The band reunited and headlines most festivals around the world.
There is far too much to say about the history of Pantera. After four albums in the classic style of the 80s, in 1990, Pantera revolutionized metal with “Cowboys from Hell”. Considered among the first Groove Metal materials, “Cowboys from HELL” was the disc that transformed Pantera into a top band. The album also appeared on the stage of the legendary Moscow show, “Monsters Of Rock”, in 1991, together with Metallica, AC/DC, Mötley Crüe, Queensrÿche and The Black Crowes, where they sang in front of 1.6 million spectators.
They followed “Vulgar Display of Power”, considered by fans and critics as one of the best metal albums in history, then “Far Beyond Driven”, material that reached the first position in the Billboard 200 and which reached the milestone the fastest of 1,000,000 sales from the Pantera catalog.
The next, “The Great Southern Trendkill”, album on which Dimebag demonstrates his mastery as a guitarist. The solo of the song “Floods” is considered by many to be the best solo of the artist, Guitar World including it on the 32nd position in the list of the best solos of all time.
“Reinventing the Steel”, is the last disc where these 4 geniuses of music, Dimebag, Rex, Vinnie and Phil can be heard together. The song “Revolution Is My Name” was also nominated for the Grammy awards for Best Metal Performance.
Pantera is synonymous with legend, a cult band for rock and metal listeners of any age, a name that can always be placed alongside the great bands of the genre such as Metallica, Iron Maiden or AC/DC/. And we will see them live in Bucharest at the METALHEAD Meeting.
